Will we face the Apocalypse on Friday, 2012-12-21?

Based on various prophecies from around the World there supposed to be some sort of major global event happening on Friday, December 21st. Whiles many call for the end of the world – the Apocalypse, others call for the return of Jesus - Messiah. If anything is to happen, these would be my guesses:

  1. Something to do with Aliens – return back to Earth, as you know Space travel takes time; revealing themselves, though we already know that they exist; or an invasion, and we all know how that will go.

  2. Geological and tectonic shifts, which could result in the extinction of large number of species population. Hey, maybe this will take care of the overpopulation and exhausting resources consumption by those who believe to be the top of the food chain! That would be us humans (Homo sapiens), we are the only ones arrogant enough to believe that! Which reminds me, I can hardly wait to see the upcoming Will Smith film “After Earth”.

  3. Word War III – are we not over due for one of does, again? There is crazy unrest going on in the Middle East. Israel and Iran are taunting each other, so is North Korea the United States. There is financial downfall around the World, except for weapons manufacturers. Stressing people and leaving many homeless, jobless and desperate. Lastly, but not the least, tensions between societies undergoing ethnic and religious integration.

  4. Lastly, what many hope and pray for, or simply believe in – nothing. Nothing is going t happen.

My money is on number three. Might not be tomorrow, but soon. Though, one of the variations of number one might be interesting to see/experience. Let all hope and pray for number four.

For your entertainment I will end this post with few comic cells giving the answer to the question “Why does the Mayan calendar ends at 2012?”.

The Mayans ran out of space on the stone, of course. HAHA.

Format MAC Address [JavaScript]

I am currently working on a project which will allow users to register their Wi-Fi enabled, non-web browser enabled, devices on the network. These are devices like printers, Apple TV, and Xbox*. One of the data points that have to be collected from the user is the device MAC address. The project customer wants that address to be properly formatted when they see it in the support ticket.

We have several options. We can format the address either on the back-end after the form has been submitted. Or we can format it on the front end via a separate text field for each character pair, but that is too many fields to handle. A better solution is to use a single field and format the user input at the time of input or upon submit. In those cases, the former is better because the data will already be formatted when the overall form input is being validation after the user clicks the “Submit” button.

We are going to format the user input as it is being provided, thus having proper data when vali…

How to setup Coda 2 to push to GitHub?

Setting up a new site in Coda 2 and cloning a GitHub remote repository is not that big of a deal. Where you will most likely run into problems is when you try to push your changes to the GitHub remote repository. Below I will show you how to update the Git config file in your local repository so you do not run into one of the following errors:
git push failed remote: Remote anonymous access to repository deniedgit push origin master Username: fatal: Could not read passwordThe GitHub repository address I am going to use is that of Source Code DNA: I will assume that you have already setup your Coda 2 site profile and cloned your repository, you have made some changes, and now you are ready to push those changes to your projects GitHub repo.

SNOOZ: Sound. Sleep.

I was on the Snooz Kickstarter page today, revisiting the project’s details and timeline progress. The device, which is a white-noise generating machine, recently became available for pre-order. Snooz is meant to be an alternative to having a TV or a stationary fan running at bed time. In my case, I bought it for my wife so we can get the TV out of the bedroom.

Whilst on the comments page I read the following comment, posted recently by Ken Tran:

I'm not a fan of the new fabric design. ...
I must disagree. If you take a look at the original design, which is all plastic and no style, I must say it is fugly. It is all utilitarian - not something I rally want to look at or see when I walk into the room. The final design, seen on the right, is something that beacons to be explored, looked at, utilized.

I am a big fan of Bang & Olufsen. They use fabric from Kvadrat in their line of products. Incorporating soft materials like fabric or leather in something which is meant to be place…
